Hi All,

We recently launched the new Windows Client TechCenter, merging the Windows XP and Windows Vista TechCenters with the Springboard Series lifecycle approach to give IT pros a one-stop source for all of the Windows Client guidance, downloads, and community resources they need to adopt and manage Windows in a desktop environment.

Key features of the new TechCenter include:

· New “zones” for top tasks related to application compatibility, User Account Control (UAC), imaging, hardware compatibility and performance, desktop security and encryption, and networking.

· Improved organization of resources by lifecycle phase and technical level (overview or advanced)

· Advice from subject matter experts at Microsoft and in the community

· New information on ways to advance and simplify desktop management

· Available in 8 languages: French, Spanish, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Germany, Russian, Portuguese, Korean, and Italian
